discoveries and actions
puttering around the yard this late afternoon i found a few things going on...reacted to one by leaving the status quo in place..changed a couple of others..the egyptian walking onions i planted are coming along well and should have no trouble over wintering...the volunteer potato that's popped up ion the onion bed may be facing a bit of trouble..it is late potato-wise and we will have to see....a move indoors? perhaps...one of the containerized jerusalem artichokes i grew just so i'd have some seed had died back so i pulled it to see what we had....we have tubers...half a dozed...so i dug a hole in a bed to store them until i decide what to do with the little bundles of reproductive fury and what turned up? a stray ramp, and a fair sized one too...so i relocated it to the ramp bed on the north side of the house...little surprises...nothing major...still...
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
